For Malcolm

I turn on the tube and what do I see
a whole lotta people crying 'don't blame me'
they point their crooked little fingers at everybody else
spend all their time feeling sorry for themselves
victim of this, victim of that
your momma's too thin and your daddy's too fat

get over it get over it
all this whining and crying and pitching a fit
get over it get over it

you say you haven't been the same since you had your little crash
but you might feel better if I gave you some cash
the more I think about it, old Billy was right
let's kill all the lawyers, kill 'em tonight
you don't want to work, you want to live like a king
but the big, bad world doesn't owe you a thing

get over it get over it
if you don't want to play, then you might as well split
get over it, get over it

it's like going to confession every time I hear you speak
you're making the most of your losing streak
some call it sick, but I call it weak
yeah yeah yeah

yeah you drag it around like a ball and chain
you wallow in the guilt you wallow in the pain
you wave it like a flag, you wear it like a crown
got your mind in the gutter, bringing everybody down
you bitch about the present and blame it on the past
I'd like to find your inner child and kick its little ass

get over it get over it
all this bitching and moaning and pitching a fit
get over it, get over it

get over it get over it
it's gotta stop sometime, so why don't you quit
get over it, get over it

i just hate to see people belittling or not seeing the big picture in Brewster Kahle's vision. A few fm broadcasts of dead shows does not even count as a drop in the bucket in the true digital library (as cool as those shows may be to us). Kahle's vision is truly one to hold to heart. As far as I know - he is really the only one doing it - i mean, look at the written archive he has stored so far - pretty impressive. Plus, letting us flap around on here.... pretty cool site. No room for any of us to bitch - whether newbies or not. I'm pretty appreciative of what the man has done as well as his damn fine staff. Ive said enough - gotta eat.

Yo, I love Internet Archive, etrees and all the groovy stuff man. Read books here, watch movies here, got broadband specially to listen to shows here, christ, I gotta live here, too ya know. Its alright, I'm glad this is a place of free speech, too, something I supported since the 60s in Berkley. I been there, man, been maced with tear gas for it even, for thinking for myself and questioning authority, for attending the peaceful demonstrations, and I'm really not trying to whine about it or need sympathy from anyone. I been wanting to help contribute to the community somehow by uploading some shows, I see where there's some holes in the lists here, but what's all this about no more uploading? Friends say my DATs are some of the best in the world, that I got so many thousands of hours I'll never get to listen to them all, so what? I'm grateful and don't care, merely thought maybe a few fms ought to be reconsidered, for all the rest of the great fans, jeez, sounds silly what happened to me. Reading all these posts about others that were sore an bummed made me wonder though, well I guess it's just tough, those musta been anchient posts. I love that sheetkickin music. I tried to follow the taping policies, making sure those I traded with didn't blow it by selling any, for the sake of the best band in the world, from the Rock Hall even. I'm ready to just forget it all an just keep my own vault for my own self and pals to hear, is there still a problem, well scuse me man. OK, so maybe I shouldn't brought back up a subject with bad vibes, that was wrong, seriously, excuse me, never in my mind to cause so much pain, whoa. May love and peace always be your friends. The band was cool, I'm grateful for all their bountiful musical offerings. Let da good times roll, may there still be songs to fill the air, if I gotta play em with my own strat, sometimes the songs are just songs of our own.
Cheers, Taper Malcolm
